3 Phase Weight Loss Program in Birmingham, AL and Atlanta, GA
Program Designed Individually For Your Success!
Your weight loss journey with Medical Weight Loss by Healthogenics will consist of three separate phases that are designed to not only help you reach your weight loss goal, but also to learn how to maintain your goal weight and keep the weight off forever.
Phase 1 | Weight Loss
Your Medical Weight Loss starts with a personalized program designed specifically for you that provides you with:
- Delicious meal and dining options – delicious and healthy eating plans designed by a licensed dietitian will help you lose weight quickly without feeling hungry or starving yourself.
- Physician – recommended injections and supplements – The latest in science and medicine, Medical Weight Loss offers you specific appetite suppressants and injections based on your medical needs that will make your weight loss easier and faster.
- Personal consultations and weekly follow up appointments- You’ll get personal, one-on-one attention to keep you focused and motivated.
Phase 2 | Stabilization
This phase begins when you have achieved your weight loss goal. This is where many other weight loss programs end which is why they always fail. In the stabilization phase you receive:
- Updated meal and dining options – reintroducing foods to your menu that have been restricted. You no longer want to lose weight, you want to eat healthy and maintain your goal weight.
- This process can take up to six weeks, where each week new foods are reintroduced back into your food plan. The importance of this is to ensure that we continue to stabilize your new weight by you eating more and more each day, while keeping your metabolism high.
- During this phase, we will gradually wean you off the medical appetite suppressants, injections, and any other form of weight control our medical team may have implemented during the weight loss phase.
- Personal consultations and weekly follow up appointments – our trained specialist will be with you all the way, to answer any questions and to make sure you stay on track and continue to prepare you for phase three.
Phase 3 | Maintenance
In phase three, you will learn how to make healthy choices in difficult situations. This is an exciting time for you as you are wearing new clothes, dining out and having the flexibility to eat cake, chocolate, more pastas and breads without gaining your weight back. How is this possible? Together, we have successfully readjusted your internal metabolic process within your body and taught you how to balance your meals to ensure normal blood sugar levels, thus promoting weight maintenance.
We will provide you with all the tools and support you need for the next twelve months to ensure that your metabolism has shifted to the new and improved you! It has been determined that it takes approximately one year for your body to readjust to the new weight to ensure successful weight maintenance. During phase three, you will continue to visit with our specialist on a weekly basis.
Your counselors will continue to be there for you to show you how to enjoy life, eat well and still maintain your goal weight. We will provide you with a customized maintenance program for you to follow, which is designed around your new metabolism and current weight. You will finally have the tools and support to maintain your new weight forever!
